Canistel variety? (picture)

Anyone can ID this variety please?

This small 7' tree in West Palm Beach was bearing a good crop over Thanksgiving weekend. Fruits were around 3 inches long & still hard but with full color (bit more of a lemon-yellow than orangish as the picture suggests)

Back in January 2009 it had only a few fruits (maybe suggesting crop ripens in December?) but tree was somewhat smaller then so it could have been due to size.

Fruit looks more slender than 'Bruce' and not as pointy as the 'Fairchild' type that i've seen in pictures..
